Ebay vendor sends wrong item to Canada, it was a mistake. The part that is stupid is the remark this punk makes. "I'm not a hit-man" so what, everyone that owns a handgun is a hit-man!?:barf:

Rampant stupidity is reaching epic porportions.

Out of curiousity, isn't it legal to send curio & relics through the post office?

I would be pretty excited if I ordered an mp3 player and got that instead. I would probably have an awfully hard time giving it up. :D

edited to add: just to clarify, I realize that the pictured firearm is not a C&R.

The pawnshop that auctioned the device sent him an unloaded .22-calibre Smith & Wesson gun and a licence by mistake.
Man, how come such things never happen to me? :evil:

I want the name and address of that pawn shop.
I wanna buy a S&W .22 that looks just like the one in the story!

In fact I'll take TWO!







Mr Buchan says he is keeping a photocopy of the gun licence as a souvenir of the incident. {voice=Jon Lovitz}Yeah, Yeah, that's it, it's a souvenir. That's the ticket. A souvenir.[/voice]

I wonder if he'll try to use it? I bet he's out tracking down a copy of the latest Shotgun News right now.

Since the guy is English, it is a wonder he did not suffer a heart attack and die on the spot, just at the sight of a GUN!!!!!!

Yeah, the fact that it's a .22 just makes that more amusing. ;-)

Actually, a .22 is a popular caliber for mob hits. At least that's what my Uncle Vinnie tells me.:D

Open package.

See contents.

Keep your damn mouth shut.



This is one of the many reasons we should overtake Canada. So we can rid the world of dipsh*ts like this guy.

Hmmm,,,,

Uncle once recieved a package, labeled "explosives". Found out, after tracking down the rightfull person, it contained .50 rifle rounds!:what:

He wished the guy would have offered some range time to play with them!

If owning a handgun makes you a hitman then obviously I'm unemployed. I should file for unemployment.

Since you all own guns you are all hitmen ... you can write your gun/ammo purchases off as business expenses.

I'm not sure that the college student majoring in English means anything other than illegally acquiring a handgun in Canada by having it smuggled across the border is what a hit-man would do. Let's not sound too paranoid if we can avoid it.

I am a hitman so I can use another gun even a S&W 22

Yeah, but imagine the guy who ordered the .22 and gets an MP3 player in the mail instead. :confused: :scrutiny::cuss::fire:

No-he's a Canadian. That explains the comment and commentary completely. :rolleyes:

He called the cops to retrieve the scary assassin tool. Ugh.:rolleyes:

Only cops can handle the self-animate firearm, you know.

IIRC: A hitman can legally take a tax deduction on ammo and fuel according to the IRS. No ????. I only wish I could find the article to prove it.

Since no one has commented on my previous comment (I guess it's true that I am on more ignore lists than anyone) I will go ahead and point out that the story mentions a S&W .22 revolver yet the photo is of a person holding a Colt Python.
